This week, we saw a new player in the Intel AIC partnership game – an old but forgotten company called Sparkle. They unveiled some new graphics cards based on the Intel Arc Alchemist series, which is the latest addition to the small family of Intel Arc products. Sparkle will be joining the likes of Acer, ASRock, MSI, Gigabyte, and GUNNIR as exclusive board partners for Arc GPUs.
Exciting news for all the Intel enthusiasts out there – a new design was announced today! It’s called the GUNNIR Photon White and it’s based on the Arc A770 16GB, which happens to be the top-of-the-line Alchemist desktop SKU. This design is essentially a replica of the original black design and features the same GPU configuration and power characteristics.
The latest graphics card boasts some impressive specifications – it comes equipped with an ACM-G10 GPU containing 32 Xe-Cores, 16GB of GDDR6 memory that runs at a clock speed of 16 Gbps, and a TDP (PL1) of 195W. It’s designed to take up 2.5 slots and has three 9cm fans to keep it cool. However, it does come with a hefty price tag – it’s currently listed at 2899 RMB, making it the most expensive GUNNIR Arc GPU released to date.
In terms of pricing, GUNNIR has made an announcement today that they are reducing the prices on their Arc series. These price cuts are pretty significant, with some of the A380 GPUs being reduced by up to 33% and some of the A770 GPUs being reduced by up to 13%. However, it’s important to keep in mind that some of these cards were previously available at lower prices during flash sales.
Just to give you an idea, if you compare the current prices of the Arc A770 with what was announced by GUNNIR back in October last year, gamers can now get an upgrade from 8GB to 16GB memory for the same price – that’s a pretty sweet deal! This promotion will run until May 10th, but with the upcoming release of the RTX 4060/RX 7600 series next month, it’s possible that these prices might not change much after the promotion ends.
